blind patient changing colostomy bag

  1. 0 I am a home care nurse and I have a blind gentleman who wants to learn to change his own colostomy bag. I have begun teaching him how to do this using his sense of feel. His wife gets somewhat frustrated with him because he sometimes smears stool. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make this process easier? Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
